Hotel is right next to Union Square thus a great base to explore. No better location! There are trams and buses nearby. Rooms were perfectly adequate - clean, decent size, great bed and staff friendly. We had breakfast included which was great to start the day. Took the BART train from airport and back was easy and cheap. Runs every... More

This hotel is right in Union Square so a great base to off and explore. There are also trams and buses nearby if required or travelling a little further out. Rooms were perfectly adequate - clean, decent size and staff friendly.

This hotel was perfect for an overnight getaway with a friend. Although we arrived at 10 o'clock in the morning, our room was ready and we were able to drop the luggage in the room and head out for shopping and lunch. Everything was clean, European – small (as expected), and very quiet. What really stands out is the convenient... More

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights for our honeymoon before heading off to Cancun. The front desk and concierge were helpful, friendly and very informative. The rooms were always clean and the bed was comfortable. We received a lovely bottle of champagne and some snacks for our honeymoon which we both enjoyed very much. The thing that... More

This was a difficult review run take for me to write as the Handlery is in a great location and is well priced compared to other Union Square hotel but obviously if your not paying 5 star rates you need to accept some compromises. The staff don't appear to be as friendly as what I'm used to in US hotels... More

My stay at the Handlery Hotel San Francisco was quite the mixed bag. I stayed last month, a quite unseasonably warm December for only two nights. The smallish lobby has the most unwelcoming doorman, it's quite laughable. I understand keeping someone at the door to keep the riff-raff out in downtown SanFran, but once you recognize it is a customer,... More

This hotel is superbly located near shops, restaurants and public transport. The hotel did not capitalise on its heritage. We unfortunately had an unhelpful person at check in, so we had no idea when we could check in even though we arrived at 2.50 pm. The check in staff member told us to sit down or go for a walk,...
